No Valerie, Just Joe

A poster at Tom Maguire’s justoneminute blog found the news that Valerie Plame Wilson was scheduled to speak at the University of Iowa on March 26 but has cancelled, citing “pending legal issues.”  From the Iowa City Press-Citizen:

According to agency representing Plame Wilson, “She was enthusiastic about speaking at University of Iowa but has been advised by her attorneys that she must first resolve certain pending legal issues arising from recent developments. She looks forward to addressing the University of Iowa community as soon as those legal issues have been resolved.”

Don’t worry, Iowans.  Joseph Wilson will speak in his wife’s place.
